Round 17 central match previews - The 'CLASSICS'

Saturday at 23:02 | CosmiC, Joseph & Ice Cold |  Hockey notes

EMLH 'CLASSICS' is defined as a matchups between 2 Masters who managed to play more than 20 head-to-head league games during their careers. During league history only one duel met these hard criteria to be classified as CLASSICS and that is nothing else than legendary Konopes vs Maestro derby. From year 2008 when they played their first league head-to-head game, these hall-of-famers have already met 27 times! which is far most among all players ever. These classic matchups are considered as a celebration of PC online hockey and the winner is always hard to predict. Even though Maestro has slightly better head-to-head results winning 15 out of 27 mutual career games, Konopes has more cups in less seasons played and won latest three games in a row. What to expect? The ultimate world-class pc hockey!

KonopesMaster***vs. Maestro^Master**

Head-to-head career matches: 15-12 for Maestro (5:7, 5:4, 4:8, 9:3, 4:5, 9:13, 3:6, 8:3, 6:7ot, 5:4, 2:5, 6:5, 10:2, 5:3, 4:2, 6:4, 6:2, 9:7, 2:0, 5:3, 3:4, 8:4, 1:2ot, 6:4, 4:5ot, 4:6, 3:4ot)
Position in actual League Standings: Konopes - 3rd / Maestro - 4th
Position in History Player Ranking Table: Konopes - 1st / Maestro - 2nd

Preview, by CosmiC: It will be central games of the season in my opinion. They are 2 top players in this season, Konopes is very strong - his position in the tournament tablet says this: only 4 defeats and 2nd. place. Konopes is the only one who can move North Star from the first place. Konopes has a very powerful attack, 3rd in the league and the strongest pressure, well, or at least one of. However, his defense is not as strong as it was a couple of years ago. And a player like the Maestro can take advantage of his errors on the defensive. Maestro, in order to stay in the top 4 and pass the first round of the Play Off must win in both games, otherwise, Maestro risks starting the Play Off from 1st. round. Maestro, like past seasons, has an excellent attack, an excellent selection of players, however, his defense is far from ideal and whether he will be able to score these 4 points is a main question. If Konopes will score from behind the gate, then Masetro will not have a single chance to win. In my opinion, Maestro will get 2 points, however, he will not be able to defeat Konopes in either of the two matches. My prediction is 2 games in favor of Konopes. In both games 2 OverTime (OT) games will be played.
Preview, by Joseph: Big moment for EMLH! Konopes versus Maestro. Legend versus Legend. This guys gave me 23 goals in 4 game! Oh my godness. Great skills, excellent offense, strong defense, big history in NHL04 online, 5 Stanley Cups in EMLH (3 Konopes, 2 Maestro) = this is Konopes & Maestro. I dont know as this round ends but I believe it will be beautiful matches. A slighty better this season has Konopes but i think that points will be divided. My tip is 1:1 and extratip is Panik (1+1) and Ovechkin (2+0).
Preview, by Ice Cold: Clash of the titans - I think everybody knows how prestige this game is for them and for the league. Two great champions of this game head to head. Konopes is in a very good form now and I think he will dictate the tempo of the game and possibly win both of the games, but as has Maestro shown in the last few games, he is able to play tight games with anyone so I think he will force overtime in both games.
Preview, by Valter: It will be hard battle for both of parts, but Konopes have more individual skills and has more strength opponents in his life, so, Capitals win both games. My tip - 2-0 for Capitals.

Round 17 - Pre-match of the week preview, by CosmiC

Saturday at 10:19 | CosmiC |  Hockey notes

MinoTN vs. TibOrr

Head-to-head career matches: 6-0 for MinoTN (8:2, 3:2, 3:2, 5:3, 6:0, 3:1)
Position in actual League Standings: MinoTN - 14th / TibOrr - 10th
Position in History Player Ranking Table: MinoTN - 16th / TibOrr - 22nd
Game preview, by CosmiC: MinoTN vs. TibOrr will be very interresting games. On the one hand - MinoTN - an excellent player with incredible luck and cheat goalie. At the moment he is not so high in the tournament table, however, he still has a few games played. MinoTN is a contender to enter into the Play Off, but, however, not with the top 4. MinoTN has not got a top attack, but he is a great performer and he does not need a lot of chances to score. Henrik Lundqvist is a cheat goalkeeper, so MinoTN can feel relatively calm, but, however, you can not relax when Pittsburgh Penguins, led by TibOrr, play against you. TibOrr perfectly uses the main force of Pittsburgh Penguins - Evgeni Malkin and Sidney Crosby. He is good at attacking, scoring a lot of goals, however, he missed sometimes very much pucks in a one match. In my opinion, TibOrr will easily enter into Play Off, I think that even from the 4th place. How will their matches end? In their matches no overtime will be played. Both players will get their 2 points and a large number of goals will be scored. My prediction - 1 win for Mino TN and 1 win for TibOrr.
